WEEK OF 11/9/20

Hello, these are your weekly messages...

We LOVE you. Always know this.

To celebrate the wonderful learning that is going on in your homes even in these tough times, please take photos of your children and place them in this folder, in the correct grade level. We will use these at our next student celebration.

Wednesday, Nov 11th is the Veterans Day Holiday. THANK YOU VETERANS!
School will resume on Thursday, Nov 12th.
All Food Distribution sites will be closed on Wednesday. Extra meals will be provided to each child on Monday 11/9 and Tuesday 11/10 to cover the meals they would regularly receive on that Wednesday.

We continue to have a partnership with UCSD for tutoring. If you are interested in a UCSD tutor for your child, please fill out this form.

If you need to speak with our office staff, please call: (619) 363-1690. You will also be able to set up a ZOOM meeting with an office staff member if needed.

The LCFF Forms that we need all families to fill out in order to receive school funding are now available in the library. We encourage you to fill out the form online, but you are also welcome to ask our librarian for the paper form. This is very important for our funding.

Many families picked up a thermometer from school. Here is the app you can download to best utilize this thermometer.

Thank you!
Hola estos son tus mensajes semanales...

Te amamos. Siempre sepa esto.

Para celebrar el maravilloso aprendizaje que está sucediendo en sus hogares incluso en estos tiempos difíciles, tome fotografías de sus hijos y colóquelas en esta carpeta, en el nivel de grado correcto. Los usaremos en nuestra próxima celebración estudiantil.

El miércoles 11 de noviembre es el Día de los Veteranos. GRACIAS A LOS VETERANOS!
La escuela se reanudará el jueves 12 de noviembre.
Todos los sitios de distribución de alimentos estarán cerrados el miércoles. Se proporcionarán comidas adicionales a cada niño el lunes 11/9 y el martes 11/10 para cubrir las comidas que recibirían regularmente ese miércoles.

Seguimos tener una asociación con UCSD para la tutoría. Si está interesado en un tutor de UCSD para su hijo, complete este formulario.

Si necesita hablar con nuestro personal de oficina, llame al: (619) 363-1690. También podrá programar una reunión ZOOM con un miembro del personal de la oficina si es necesario.

Los formularios LCFF que necesitamos que completen todas las familias para recibir fondos escolares ya están disponibles en la biblioteca. Le recomendamos que complete el formulario en línea, pero también puede pedirle a nuestro bibliotecario el formulario en papel. Esto es muy importante para nuestra financiación.

Muchas familias recogieron un termómetro de la escuela. Aquí está la aplicación que puede descargar para utilizar mejor este termómetro.
